LBVR Origin System Powers the Movement-Based “Shadow Shifter” Game; Sneak Peak at Shōgun 1.3, including High-Fidelity Finger Capture in Real-time in South Hall, Booth #1027
At this year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC), Vicon, the industry leader in motion capture, will be showing off the latest refinements to its location-based virtual reality (LBVR) system, Origin. To showcase those advancements and give a practical look at the true potential of LBVR, Vicon is challenging GDC attendees to a Beat Saber-like game – but in Vicon’s version, the only controllers are the players themselves.
“Although Origin is less than a year old, we have only begun to scratch the surface of its vast capabilities,” said Vicon CEO, Imogen Moorhouse. “For GDC, we want to give showgoers a practical demonstration of how Vicon is developing its leading LBVR system while having a little fun at the same time.”
Since its launch in August 2018, Origin has quickly established itself as the preeminent LBVR solution and the only choice for partners like Dreamscape Immersive and VR Arcade. Part of the reason for Origin’s success is Characters from Clusters, a feature that carries out the solving while seamlessly integrating with Unity and Unreal Engine for up to six users at a time, all delivered in under 20 milliseconds. The results are fully tracked and animated characters within the game engine, all in real-time. For operators, it means the most powerful LBVR solution on the market, for users, it’s an immersive experience like no other.
